And the actor and good pal Matt Damon, who also stars in the movie, have already done a fine job at setting the scene for the new World War II period drama.
The Ocean's Eleven co-stars were spotted on set in Berlin on Monday.

Wearing a bulky padded black jacket and a scarf around his neck, the handsome silver fox 51-year-old was certainly prepared for the extremely cold weather conditions as he clutched onto a director's view finder.
Meanwhile Matt looked extremely handsome in his khaki American military uniform and hat.

The script was adapted by George and Grant Heslov from Robert M. Edsel's true-life book of the same name and recounts the final chapter of Hitler's rule as the Nazis begin to realise their fight is hopeless.
George plays an art enthusiast who leads a team of museum curators and art historians on a mission to recover valuable pieces stolen and vandalised by the Nazis, in a bid to restore German culture.

It was reported that Stacy's romance with the Hollywood heartthrob had turned sour as the couple were reported to have gone their separate ways.
The Sun reported that a source had told them: 'They knew it was never going to end in marriage or babies and Stacy does want kids and a husband in the next few years.'
But it seems there’s no truth in the rumours as she proved by visiting her man half way across the globe.
The Ocean's Eleven star has been dating Stacy for just over a year and a half, and met just a month after the actor broke up with Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis.
